I'm Michelle Pollino.

Luke Bryan hits the Grammy stage making his performance debut, only he wont be singing his songs on Monday, instead the country superstar will take part in a tribute to musical legend Lionel Richie. Bryan is not nominated for any Grammy awards this year, but this guy is...

Chris Stapleton, nominated for four including album of the year for 'Traveller' and country album alongside Sam Hunt for 'Montevallo,' Little Big Town for 'Pain Killer,' Ashley Monroe for 'The Blade' and 'Pageant Material' Kacey Musgraves.

Carrie Underwood, Sam Hunt and Little Big Town are all set to take the stage as well.

And he's back... After canceling his February tour dates due to health concerns from double pneumonia, Merle Haggard returned to the stage this past weekend in Vegas for a show that also included Toby Keith. It was the singer's first appearance since calling off his February 2 performance in Riverside, California.
